Mrs. Shaw from Concord CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building a Love for Reading!

My students need new books for the class library. They have a love for reading and I want to supply a variety of new books. Ultimately, I want them to recommend books to each other!

My Students

I have a wonderful group of students! They love to learn and be challenged. Our class discussions are often interesting and spirited! They work well together and love to share. They are kind and helpful, truly a class to be proud of.

They are eager readers and need some new selections.

They love to suggest books and many are waiting for some good recommendations.

They love to read new books and many students loan each other their personal books. They are more likely to finish a book that has been recommended by a friend.

My Project

Research shows that students who read well do better in school and beyond. Students need to read for comprehension and fluency. I want to have new and exciting books for the kids at all times. I have chosen some new books that I would like for our library. These will be accessible to the students.

Students need to be so excited about books they are reading.

Hopefully they will talk about their books and recommend them. Unfortunately, book stores are disappearing and kids are having trouble picking out books. I want to expand my classroom library with new and interesting titles. They will hopefully talk about their books and inspire others to read.
